Writing in the Present Tense: Art, Identity, and Vision
Join us for a poetry workshop with author Claire Millikin. This workshop guides participants on an exploration of the summer 2022 exhibits with art and poetry joining together to see anew. Writing will emerge from the works by Reggie Burrows Hodges | Hawkeye, Yashua Klos, and Veronica Perez, and The View from Here exhibit. Writing in the present tense is writing from art and from self, engaging through our responses to art to enhance our lens of vision. The workshop includes discussion of the art works and also group critique of poems which participants will draft springing from the process of viewing the art works.
Claire Millikin is the author of eight books of poetry, including Dolls (2Leaf Press 2021) and State Fair Animals (Unicorn Press 2019), a finalist for the Maine Literary Award in Poetry. For her anthology Enough! Poems of Protest and Resistance (Littoral Books 2020), she is a recipient of the Maine Literary Award. She teaches Art History at the University of Maine and at the Institute for Doctoral Studies in the Visual Arts. Under her married name of Claire Raymond she is the author of several books of scholarship on the history and theory of photography.
